Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA)

We use this tool to analyze network traffic flow. This tool provides visibility into application traffic and allows us to see it in real-time and historically to provide real insight into what is actually occurring if we are experiencing difficulties with our applications. The tool can analyze many different network protocols as/vendors. It is good at tracking SNMP, packet data, etc.
  • Providing insight into flow based technology
  • Provides insight into problems with packet based technology
  • Can really help with an abnormal data flow mapping
  • Wirks well with other Orion products
  • Cloud monitoring is lacking
  • Better reporting and filtering capabilities
  • Stronger integrations with other 3rd party products
  • Reduce time on any investigation
  • Improved software compliance requirements
  • Reduced staff frustration resolving “network problems”
The interface on SolarWinds is much better and the time to deploy is much faster with NTA than other products. The ability for junior staff to quickly pick up on the tool is outstanding and it seems to take less expertise to use this product. The output display is easy to interpret and the reporting is very easy to decipher for management.
Support is easy to contact and very knowledgeable about their products. Never had an issue reaching them, even when they had their own breach. Working with them over the phone or online seems to work identically. We have never talked with a representative who was not knowledgeable about the product or had a difficult time understanding what our problem was during the call.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer flow alerts to monitor all traffic on the network and we have numerous alerts set up to detect high traffic utilization. The alerts are easy to set up and customized to alert different groups to different concerning situations, like high traffic, jitter, and packet loss on our VoIP network. This was especially helpful when we were asked to roll out web conferencing tools to all employees. The tool is helpful for both virtualized and physical server environments.
